Rhino3d for Windows is one of the most widely used 3D modelling applications in the world. Popular with designers, architects, engineers, artists and manufacturers - there is simply nothing to equal Rhino in terms of price and performance. Now this powerful modelling application is available for Mac OS X.
Rhino is popular across a broad range of industries including architecture, jewellery, marine design, product design, film and TV, exhibition design, point of sale and transportation. Highly accurate technical surfaces and solids shared with customers and colleagues via a wide range of common file types and Rhino has all the tools required to create 2D production documentation when necessary. Rhino natively supports 3D printing and rapid prototyping and all 3D printers or 3D print bureaus will accept output from Rhino.
Rhino for OSX has been designed from the outset to look and feel like a true Mac application. The interface of Rhino3d for Windows and Rhino for Mac are purposely very different - a real 3D working environment is accessible within the comfort of the Mac interface. Unrestrained modelling tools allow the user to model anything that can be imagined regardless of shape, complexity or size. Work freely with 2D or 3D curves, surfaces solids and meshes; import existing models, geometry, photographic references or sketches via a vast range of file types. Rhino’s non-prescriptive workflow ensures that designers can model in an individual and unencumbered manner whilst maintaining a high level of accuracy. Besides the 3D environment, Rhino has a full set of 2D tools suitable for both initial design layout and production drafting.
Some notes from the Rhino for Mac Product Manager - Dan Belcher, McNeel - “Rhino is used in so many different industries; where there’s freeform shapes, there’s Rhino. It has a robust set of solid, mesh, and analysis tools. It has stylistic display modes that make it clear, fast, and fun to get things visualized. It’s compatible with so many different products...the go-to software for interoperability. Support is free and human-scale - no silly tickets and bureaucracy - not to mention the user community that has built up over the years. Rhino has become the platform for so many creative projects and we are excited to bring it to the Mac. We think that experienced modelers and OS X users will feel right at home.”
Finally, Rhino is extremely competitively priced and there are no annual maintenance or support fees.
